Veins can be treated in a number of ways depending on whether they are spider veins which are smaller and appear on the legs and face or varicose and reticular veins which are larger and appear on the legs and can be bothersome.
We have a variety of methods to take care of veins from lasers to injections. A consultation will determine which treatment is right for you.
Sclerotherapy by Injection
If you have visibly noticeable varicose veins on your legs and want to get rid of them Sclerotherapy may be right for you.
Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a biological detergent into the vein. This solution irritates the lining of the vein, which causes it to stick together, stopping blood flow. The vein then closes off and ultimately dies. This process can take up to a few weeks. Once the vein is dead, your body works to naturally remove it from your system. You will be able to see changes in color and firmness for 3-6 months. Veins close to the surface will show for a longer period of time, while deeper veins disappear more quickly. Larger veins will take longer to heal.
This is a minimally invasive procedure that is a wonderful treatment option for smaller veins and broken capillaries that are too small to be addressed with sclerotherapy. This vein treatment uses microburst technology which delivers a quick electric current and uses heat to collapse damaged veins, which will eventually fade and be reabsorbed by your body. VeinGogh works best for broken capillaries on the face although it can treat spider veins on the legs as well.
Our Splendor X laser for hair removal has a vein and vascular setting that treats spider veins, broken capillaries, and vascular lesions. The laser beams penetrate deeper through the dermis to break down smaller surface veins. This is an effective treatment to remove any residual spider veins on the legs after sclerotherapy injection treatment.
I just got my second VeinGogh treatment with Judy and I love the results, my capillaries veins are gone.
Great place, great esthetician !
